It looks like our pre-schoolers are getting smarter this year, at least when it comes to taking the OLSAT test for the NYC gifted and talented program. The NY times recently wrote an article with the breakdown of how 34% more students received 99% on the OLSAT this year compared to last year’s OLSAT test.  It also seems there must be something good in the water in District 2 as the #1 district with the highest number of 99% for the OLSAT test. In case you’re wondering, district 2 covers downtown in Tribeca, Battery Park City, Financial District, then goes up through mid-town west then snakes over to the UES.

According to the article in the NY Times here is the breakdown showing the number of children scoring in the 99th percentile in each district:

1. 16
2. 193
3. 144
4. 2
5. 17
6. 39
8. 7
